UPDATE: Derek ended up winning the Hottest Body (of work) award! (Unfortunately, Mark and Derek did not win Best Bromance.) Check out Derek's performance on the show over here.
But not only is Derek planning to attend the show to see if he won, he’s putting his busy self to work on stage. Derek shared the news today via Facebook: "I am so psyched/honored/pumped/excited to perform at the @yhawards! Be sure to watch July 28th at 8/7c on the CW. #yha http://yhawards.com/"
That is pretty exciting! Derek and Julianne Hough are about to finish up Move Live on Tour this weekend, and in the first week of August Derek will release his new book. So he’s really squeezing this performance into his schedule. (His movie Make Your Move also comes out on DVD tomorrow, July 22, so add that to your Derek calendar as well.)
The 2014 YHAs will air Monday, July 28 at 8 p.m. on The CW. Other performers and presenters include Derek’s good friend Nikki Reed (Twilight), musical artist Trey Songz, Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Bella Thorne (Shake it Up!), Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) and Gina Rodriguez (the upcoming Jane The Virgin).
Good luck to Derek — with his performance and award nominations!
